Should The Mets Send Wright, Santana and K-Rod Away?

As most of the world knows by now, the Mets stink.

We all know the biggest reason the Mets suck this year is most of their star players are on the disabled list.

As the Mets keep on losing and falling back in the division, you've got to wonder if it is worth it to keep the rest of the team together.

I am not saying trade them or anything like that, just give them time off so they don't join their compatriots on the DL.

The thing is that I do not just think it's bad luck Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Maine, F-Mart, and Putz are on the DL.

You can say we may have seen it coming with Delgado, Maine, F-Mart, and Putz. But everyone going means there's someone to blame.

And that is why I hope Omar cleans house in the medical department so the Mets don't end up killing themselves.

But, as we all know, even if that does happen it will only happen in the offseason.

Until then, it may be a good idea for the Mets to keep Wright, Santana, and K-Rod off the diamond and away from the danger.

I know I am not a season ticket holder, but I think this is the best move the Mets can make.

Maybe the Mets can do something like the Pirates did with their tickets sales

I feel sorry for the fans, but I think it is for the better of the team.

I bet Omar and Jerry told these three guys that they are a big part of the future and to avoid injure any way possible.

Even if that means not diving hard for a ball or not sliding hard in to a base. And maybe we will not see Santana throw over 100 pitches.

That is good, but I think the Mets should take it to the next level and keep their players safe.

I know Omar and the Wilpons will never do this.  I don't know if any teams front office would ever do it.

But I just think it for the good of the team.
